Clinical Trials

Patients who participate in cancer clinical trials receive the highest standard of care – regardless of their type or stage of cancer. Many of our leading-edge clinical trials are done in cooperation with other institutions nationwide, offering us a clear picture of which drugs are the most effective and which are ineffective.

Our doctors meet regularly to discuss new research developments. The close relationship between researchers and clinicians means the latest research findings are translated into new treatment approaches as quickly as possible.

Doctors at UT Southwestern have developed and are running several national clinical trials treating the most aggressive thyroid cancers. These involve strategies such as targeting genetic mutations in the cancer, as well as using the immune system to destroy cancer cells.
